Start about 30' right of Buckets To Burbank and make bouldery moves to reach a horizontal (medium piece). Easy moves lead upward to another horizontal (med/large piece) where a highstep takes you over a small roof/overlap to reach a bolt below the top. Friction moves past the bolt lead somewhat up and right to finish and lead to anchors on a ledge.

Good climbing that's similar to the other routes on the wall, although not quite as high quality as the others.


This route is located on the same wall as Buckets To Burbank and Ledges To Lawndale, near the right end.


Bolt (3/8"), gear to 3 inches, bolted anchor

If you step left about five feet, there is a combination that goes about 10a.

Nice, short, fun one. Not a 10c in our book. Not sure how it got a rating that high. Just a number though. A starting point. Relative to each in a given situation. And Woody is right again. To the left it is easier. But the actual route is very doable as well. Also felt in the 10a's to my son and I.

Direct start is fun, boulder problem to gain ledge. Cruiser after that.
